Server Management Should Be Simple

Those of you who know me well may know that one of my obsessions is pushing the limits of WordPress. In the last year, I’ve done total conversions of WordPress for use in web apps, WordPress-based development frameworks, desktop application development utilizing the WordPress backend, and even written an OS desktop environment built around WordPress (more on that particular project later). So long story short, during WordCamp Miami last year I had…    read more 

Let’s Talk About Addons

February 24, 2015    

Addons are confusing. Particularly if you’re working with multiple different platforms. In the WordPress world, we call them plugins. Drupal calls them modules, Joomla and Magento call them extensions… the list goes on. But are they really that complicated? What exactly is an addon?

It’s hard to believe that 2014 is over… but what an incredible year! In the course of 365 days, we’ve gone from obscurity to having over thirty actively developed public plugins, with more coming every day! But that’s just the beginning… we’ve got big plans for 2015, and we hope to have you all along for the ride.

Mac for Linux Users

November 10, 2014    

Well, I’m going to start off by saying that obviously I’ve failed to make my 30-day mark. Somehow I managed to miss a day completely without even realizing I did it. It’s surprisingly difficult to actually post something every day, even once you do manage to get into a routine. However… that doesn’t mean I’m quitting! I’ve managed to make several personal breakthroughs in the last weeks, and I find that despite the obvious aggravations, maintaining a regular blog post is actually beneficial in some ways. So, the posts go on!

Divide By Zero

November 5, 2014    

Today hasn’t been what I’d call an over-all winning day, and I’m too fried to come up with an original, coherent post… but that doesn’t mean i can’t write! So today will effectively be a brain dump of things I’ve worked on, realized or discovered today. Consider this fair warning that while you will likely learn something from this post, some of it is likely to be nonsensical at best.

Burnout, Or What To Do When You Hit A Brick Wall

November 4, 2014    

Before I begin, I’d like to take a moment and apologize for what passed for a post yesterday. Anyone who’s ever been a victim of migraines can tell you just how difficult they can make it to actually do anything… particularly when it comes to looking at words on a screen. However… I promised I’d get back to the real content today, so here we are!

Not As Easy As It Seems

November 2, 2014    

For those of you who are just joining the party, I’m almost a week into a little personal challenge. I’ve always struggled at maintaining an active blog… I love writing, but coming up with the actual inspiration for new posts is surprisingly difficult for me. Those who know me well can attest that this particular issue plagues most aspects of my life. For me, everything from coming up with ideas for a…    read more 

Accessibility in the Information Age

November 1, 2014    

I’m going to preface this post by stating that in my experience, this particular topic can occasionally be downright controversial. As such, I feel it’s important to note that accessibility is a subject that hits particularly close to home for me. No, I don’t personally have a serious disability, but both my son and his mother do. Specifically, both are deaf. As a result, I’ve had the opportunity to witness first-hand how even a relatively minor disability can affect the lives of those afflicted.
